I’m Martha Castillo. My background is in the social service, education, medical and information sciences. I have an MLIS from San Jose State University and a B.A in Sociology from CSU Fullerton. I was most recently the Latino Outreach Librarian for the City of Santa Monica’s public library system, working with youth and their families as a bridge to library services and programs. Previous to working in libraries, doing research, programming, collection development, and grant-writing, I worked for 12 years for the state of California as a senior vocational rehabilitation counselor and a disability insurance representative, and have also worked as a college tutor, and a learning resource center aide. I have worked both in California and the Southwest regions. I am currently seeking a program analyst or research-related position with the federal and/or state government and I am really glad to have found GovLoop! Thanks for inviting me onboard!
